We have the right to fully participate in local and national government and have equal access to all public services.
We are all responsible for actively engaging in the democratic process to ensure freedom of speech, and that all public services which uphold the dignity and safety of all our citizens are not denied or restricted unfairly. We also have responsibility to hold elected representatives to account where they fail in their responsibilities.
So what does that mean for me? We live in an active democracy. In 2020, our town councillors are exploring what it means to put human rights at the heart of our rich and vibrant community. We will keep you updated as we develop this further.
